    Hi there,

    I'm using the Categories Images plugin here: http://plumepoetry.com/archives-by-issue/ and I would really like the image captions to show with the images, at least on the category archive pages.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, the plugin stores only the image url in the database so when you display it you only use the url, and that is why you can't display the image caption.

    Why you don't use the category description instead ?

    Hi, Muhammed,

    Thanks, but I'm already using the cat description to create the description of each issue in the archives of a magazine: http://plumepoetry.com/archives-by-issue/

    Now I need a way to display the image caption to give credit to the archive on the past issue archive pages: http://plumepoetry.com/category/issue-9/

    Would it be easier to try to do a custom field for the category, then call that on the category page?

    Unfortunately wordpress does not support custom fields for categories, so the plugin saves only the url of the image for each category as an option in the database.
    So displaying image caption are not available in this plugin, sorry for that.
